Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (RE)
RE is a statutory entitlement for all pupils registered in a school, including Reception year and post-16. It is locally determined rather than nationally stipulated within the national curriculum, allowing for variation in local faith and belief communities. The agreed syllabus provides the statutory requirements for RE in Maintained schools and Voluntary Controlled schools, and is recommended for Voluntary Aided schools, Academies and Free Schools to ensure consistency and coherence in the entitlement of all Hertfordshire pupils.
The new revised LAS will now be implemented at the start of the academic year 2023-24. Hertfordshire SACRE held a conference on 24th April 2023 to formally launch the new syllabus.
The slides together with links to the recordings of both the primary and secondary sessions are available below:
